What facts do you want? You can check out Diamond's website for their side of the issue; check out the FDA"s site; and read gazillions of hysterical posts all over the Internet to get 'facts' about Diamond products from self-proclaimed experts.
If you care to investigate, you'll see that dozens of non-Diamond dog food brands have been recalled at some point, for a variety of reasons.
If you think you'd like to try TOTW, go for it and see how your pooch does on it. I fed it for a couple of years and my dogs looked and performed very well with it. There were several things I didn't like about TOTW - a little over feeding produced sloppy stools, messy to clean up; my dogs were pretty gassy on it; their stools were r-a-n-k!; and with feeding five dogs, it was kind of expensive. But my dogs liked it, and did well on it otherwise. My setters got 2 cups a day at one daily feeding.
Several show handlers I know feed TOTW and like it because their dogs maintain great condition and have lovely coats, and TOTW has resulted in less stoolage to pick up.
To reduce costs, a few months ago I switched to Diamond Extreme Athlete, and my dogs are doing just as well, also on 2 cups. Here TOTW is $47/30#. EA is $35/40#. If they drop off in any way, I'll go back to TOTW in a heartbeat.
